Gearboxes.

Hi to all,

Having found out about a guy in London selling off two Bedford Ice cream van gearboxes I bought them and had them shipped north, Knowing that there casings were wrong sided gear levers, but I can rebuild them into casings I have in my spares collection.
Should have at least one good working gearbox out of the two and at £75.oo for the both of them they are worth the cost and the work involved.

Hi Doug
I really don't know what we would do without you keeping these gearboxes going. You're a star

London Gearboxes.

Hi to all,

The gearboxes have been stripped and accessed for damage and both have problems no surprise there then, one with a broken main-shaft and the other with a smashed lay-shaft and third forth gear sincro broken in three bits.
Being from the ice-cream van CFs I will rebuild them into the CF van gearbox casings which puts the gearstick on the correct side of the box.
Due to how scarce these gearboxes are becoming it is worth doing the work.
